Memories

Its 3 years today  that i got that fateful phone call at precisely 3:10 AM (PST or 3:40 PM IST)  on 29th July that i have been scared since the day i left home. It is  a phone call  probably every kid like me who had to move away from parents , knows has to take some day or other , is petrified to take and sincerely  hopes and prays it doesn’t come ever. Such is the irony of life. …

Lets get creative… again…

Regular 9:00 – 5:00 (which in modern days is not 9:00 – 5:00 any more) , we all do things which are very repetitive which is the need of the business. We all have to maintain the Customer first (Get customer their parts .. they are paying your company bills) , Company ( get there profitibalityup .. after all they are paying your bills) and Family ( after all all you do is for family isn’t it ? ) and…

Baba

We boys are a strange lot. For some strange unwritten reasons we tend to believe that we can’t cry publicly.Privately away from the prying eyes  though it is an entirely different story. The saddest moment when the burst of private tears do come out are when the people who gave you the best memories themselves become memories. As a kid when baba used to go for official trips, i used to quietly take his photograph and weep and for same…

Webster defines “Culture” as Integrated pattern of  human knowledge, belief, and behavior that depends upon the capacity for learning and transmitting knowledge to succeeding generations Key points out there are knowledge , belief ,behaviour that we try to transmit to succeeding generations .Simple words on the face of it but so difficult if we really think 🤔  about it . What is extremely curios is that “correct” knowledge helps us to  form our beliefs and executing the belief based on…

Words

As a kid used to hear a song from Boyzone which used to inspire me a lot . “Its only words …and words are all i have to take your heart away “ Wouldn’t be a lie if i say that probably it inspired me to start  stitching words together which sounded like poems to some (though i could not claim them to be one) . They are just words and words alone to me . They helped me to  express…

Nothing else Matters

Back in Y2k when I first moved to Germany and started getting the taste of living in snow as a part of adult me there was a particular song which always came to mind when I saw snow for no apparent reason other than i probably heard the song most during the snow in Karlsruhe . I guess this is a classic example of Classical conditioning or Pavlovian as Debangana was telling me and reminds of the Consumer Behavior lessons from…

Can I be Child Again

“You don’t measure love in time. You measure love in transformation. Sometimes the longest connections yield very little growth, while the briefest of encounters change everything. The heart doesn’t wear a watch – it’s timeless. It doesn’t care how long you know someone. It doesn’t care if you had a 40 year anniversary if there is no juice in the connection. What the heart cares about is resonance. Resonance that opens it, resonance that enlivens it, resonance that calls it…

Wishing Baba a very Happy 66th Birthday…. where ever he is

Some people say when a child comes to this world , he/she is a blank sheet of paper or a piece of wet clay. As the adult train them to differentiate between good and bad , the blank paper starts to get filled / the clay starts getting molded . At the beginning of the life those writing on papers are probably with pencil which can be erased by an eraser and the clay can be re-molded, but the parents…

Little Vyom turns Nine

The Number Nine seem to have got a big significance in all cultures through time.  Be that Nine universal elements from Hindu philosophy in Earth , Air, Water, Fire, Ether, Time, Space, Soul and Mind , Nine planets (Navagraha)  , Nine worlds from Norse mythology or the famous saying in cat has “nine” lives. Mathematically too nine is pretty interesting number as it is the only number where when you multiply any number by 9, then add the resulting digits to reduce them to a single digit, it…
